I'm trying to create a listbox of items within my Object. Below is the structure of my object, basically I want to be able to loop through the object and extract 'defaultControls' and 'controlSet1' from it.

Variable _level0.my_so = [object #237, class 'SharedObject'] {
    data:[object #238, class 'Object'] {
      defaultControls:[object #239, class 'Object'] {
        0:[object #240, class 'Object'] {
          screenname:"ios",
          icon:3,
          bkgd:0,
          template:3,
          selected:true,
          deleted:false,
          },
          prev:[object #240, class 'Object'],
          c:1
        }
      }
      controlSet1:[object #240, class 'Object'] {
        0:[object #240, class 'Object'] {
          screenname:"ios",
          icon:3,
          bkgd:0,
          template:3,
          selected:true,
          deleted:false,
          },
          prev:[object #240, class 'Object'],
          c:1
        }
      }
    },
    onStatus:[function 'onStatus']
  }


So far i've tried:

      for (i in _root.my_so.data){
      fileList.addItem(_parent.my_so.data[i]);
        }

      for (i in _root.my_so.data){
      fileList.addItem(_parent.my_so.data[i].name);
        }

      for (i in _root.my_so.data){
      fileList.addItem(_parent.my_so.data[i].label);
        }

none of these are giving me the output i want. Please help!

What type of data do you want to be displayed in List component?

You mentioned, you want to list items 'defaultControls' and 'controlSet1'  from  your 'my_so' object.

If you will type trace (_root.my_so.data.defaultControls); you will see no literal output.

You can add a property 'objectName' of a type String to the 'defaultControls' and 'controlSet1'  objects and output the value of this property in List.

Though I dont understand your code fully Iam just trying to help you out with my very little knowledge.

The first odd thing which I see in the code is that you are trying to populate the list box with an Object which is not possible.

Second , your my_so object doesnt contain a "name" property which you can directly refer to. As I can learn from your code your Object structure is something like : my_so ( data ( defaultControls ( 0 ( screenname, icon,.....) ) ) ) so if you want to get the value of screename you would write a code something like _level0. my_so.data.defaultControls.0.screenname.

The third is your addressing method :

for (i in _root.my_so.data){
fileList.addItem(_parent.my_so.data[i].label);
}

Intially you have your my_so Object ar _level0 and in the above code your are using _root and _parent. You can try with the same _level0 instead.

Hope this helps and as I said iam not really able to understand your code completly so please excuse me if iam wrong.

Thanks,
KP

I've come to the conclusion that the only way to do it is to add a unique id to each object and call it using that name instead.

Thanks for your help guys.
